Since the box fits snugly to the frame, you have to get the right size. And you want the right color. Luckily this was right after I signed up for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. As you know, Active makes you re-up on your USAT license if your current one expires before the race you are signing up for. So I did that and they sent you a $20 off coupon for Trisports in the email.

a thread on Slowtwitch where they mentioned 2 sided tape, as well as 2 part epoxy. I thought the tape would be much easier, so I went with that.

I took the rear wheel off and hung the bike on my homemade bike stand. I cleaned off the back of the seat tube and frame to try and have the best surface possible for adhesion.

Hopefully this will save me a few seconds at Ironman Augusta 70.3 from an aerodynamic standpoint and also the time it takes me to stuff gels in my kit (and remove them). For the money and time, it was actually pretty easy and well worth it. Plus, it makes Green Lightning look that much faster!
Please note: Quintana Roo does not endorse this procedure. It is better than drilling holes in your frame though!
